Rasa the Little Eagle lays an egg

Take note – story published 3 years and 1 month ago

For those still traumatised by the recent turn of events in the White-tailed eagles' nest in Latvia, we can offer something a little more encouraging.

Another Latvian nest-based webcam has captured a different female eagle, who goes by the name of Rasa, laying a fresh egg, as evidenced by the video below.

Rasa the Little Eagle laid her first egg on the evening of April 27, at 20:15:56. Little Eagles usually lay two eggs at 3-5 day intervals, but only one young bird generally reaches maturity and will eventually fly the nest, according to information from Latvia's State Forests, which operates the webcam.

So if you can no longer bear the brutality of life in the White-tailed eagle nest with its parental abandonment, neglect of juveniles, freezing to death and maternal cannibalism, the Little Eagle nest may offer a fresh chance of a more hopeful domestic outcome.
